Earlier this week, Law.com ran a long piece on the complicated and confusing standards for protecting attorney client privilege. Meanwhile, the American Bar Association is reporting on yet another recent case involving the accidental disclosure of protected information. Unfortunately, these type of stories are endless. Inadvertent production of privileged information is going to remain one of the biggest problems in discovery. Clients tell us that when faced with overwhelming volumes of data in litigation, protecting privileged documents is almost impossible. It’s caused millions of dollars in losses and destroyed countless cases, including some high-profile litigation.

That’s why we are proud to introduce Privilege Protect™,  Nextpoint’s technology for producing electronic evidence in litigation. You can read the press release for more information, but the bottom line is this: advanced machine learning technology is now at your disposal to prevent privilege failures. Privilege Protect is technology that checks data before it is produced to see if legal teams are producing documents that may be highly similar to other documents that have been marked as privileged or have confidential information. The goal is to save attorneys from one of the most damaging and common eDiscovery failures – inadvertent production of privileged information. It’s a pernicious problem, and one that had no immediate solution. Until now.
